I've always played music - piano, guitar, bassoon and ukulele. My specialty is teaching senior citizens the joy of music. I also love teaching children as well...and my method is strum and sing. We'll learn how to read tabs and chords and just enjoy songs they love - any age, any genre. I work with all challenges.

Our 12-year old son has been learning clarinet from Mr. Dimitry for about a year now and we highly recommend him to prospective students for his deep music knowledge, rich clarinet performance experience and above all, just being a great clarinet teacher.

In a year's time with Mr. Dimitry, our son's progress has been very impressive. After our son started lessons with Mr. Dimitry, it quickly became apparent that Mr. Dimitry is a very experienced teacher for young musicians. He engages our son effectively to keep him interested in music and clarinet while at the same time sets high expectations for him. Our son always looks forward to clarinet lessons and also is motivated to practice pieces at home.

Mr. Dimitry not only teaches sound clarinet skills, but also emphasizes the importance of playing music the right way, that is to tell stories and express feelings through music rather than to play music like a technician. Although it is difficult for a young musician to fully appreciate this concept, it does go a long way in preparing him to become a really good musician in the long run.

Mr. Dimitry is very polite, pleasant and professional. We recommend him without any reservation.

My 7 year old son has been taking recorder lessons from Dimitry for almost 1 year now. Dimitry is very patient, encouraging, and enganging - considering that my son is on the younger side. Dimitry provides music instruction that is appropriate age and level wise, so my son feels accomplished and challenged at the same time.
We plan to continue with Dimitry and hopefully advance to the clarinet once his fingers can cover the clarinet holes and he has learned more music theory. My son looks forward to his music lessons. We are very pleased with his musical instruction.

Incredibly amiable, professional, and talented as a teacher.

As a senior in high school now graduating and transferring into college, I started my lessons with Dimitry in December last year and had to end this summer at the end of the music school's program. Even though my time learning the saxophone was short, Dimitry used my past musical experience to help guide me through the instrument. His lessons did not feel long in any sense of the word, and in fact some two-hour lessons I took to make up missed weeks blew by, as I was constantly engaged by his teachings. During my studies with him I found myself in the presence of a true musician, and this was only further driven home when I saw him play in the Hanover Wind Symphony at the Morristown Community Theater with Stanley Drucker. I would highly recommend Dimitry as an instructor for a student at any level.

It is important to able to read music notes and understand the theory behind before starting to play an instrument. I started learning music theory at the very young age. I struggled when come to understanding the concept until one day one of my friend explained to me how they connected. I love how music and math could be related and how magic works when you figured out!

Stephanie is absolutely amazing!!!! I originally went to school for music, but have not sung in a very long time (talking years) and had forgotten most of what I had learned. I was so happy to find Stephanie to help me brush up (a lot)! She showed so much patience and so much knowledge. Thank you so much for an amazing lesson!! I can't wait until my next lesson with you!

I've been teaching guitar for 5 years helping students develop a love for the instrument and learn more about music along the way. There are many styles I'm comfortable teaching from folk (fingerpicking or flatpicking), rock, blues and funk and I would love working on developing a unique style of your own. Within the first few lessons you'll have a solid base of strumming, picking and chord changes and even a few simple songs under your belt. Moving on from there I will craft lessons to move you toward a "goal song," making sure to cater your progress to your needs while keeping a focus on good technique. I enjoy working with students of all ages and experiences and I can't wait to meet you!

"Gaw is a Knowledgble, Caring and Talented Music Teacher

My 5 year old daughter has been taking vocal lessons from Gaw for the past 4 months. I am always pleasantly surprised as she continually teaches new techniques each week. What a great musical foundation my daughter will eventually have. additionally Gaw is always encouraging and supportive especially when my daughter wanders off key. Thanks Gaw for your inspired training and support."

"Marco is punctual, patient and knowledgeable. He created a comfortable studio environment where I could progress at my own pace. Sometimes he would give me a simple tip that made a difficult passage suddenly easy, or we would work through a section on piano. Marco has a killer ear and can hear the tiniest detail in a piece. I was able to progress faster than I thought I would/could with his guidance and excellent teaching style. He would make a great teacher for any level student."
